star-5
At LAST SAMURAI, you will deepen your knowledge of samurai through courtesy, mold and armor. And at the end you will use the actual seriousness to do a "test-off". Exciting experiences that are not experienced in everyday life are waiting for you. In the old days, Ii, as well as sculpting techniques, were essential techniques to keep a fight or to protect oneself. Although it seems that such technology is not necessary in the present age, here at LAST SAMURAI I believe that learning about this technology, Zen under safe guidance will broaden spirituality and vision. It includes videos, testimonials, and whistles when you try out and it will be a great experience for anyone interested in Japan.
